Chicka Chicka 1 2 3...and more stories about counting

Fall 2006 DVD
Ages: 2 - 7 yrs.
DVD Price: $14.95
The next time your children ask how much a million (or billion or trillion) is this DVD may save the day. The concept is made understandable by using clever child-friendly comparisons: if you stack a million children on one another's shoulders, you would reach past the moon, for example.

Our young viewers who are fascinated by money—counting it, sorting it, putting it in banks—were intrigued by If You Made A Million, where Marvelosissimo the Mathematical Magician teaches children the value of different coins and bills. Prompting lessons in basic math skills, Marvelosissimo puts together different combinations of money and demonstrates how different permutations can add up to the same final tally.

The skillful animation and charming narration of Chicka Chicka 1 2 3 delighted those watching one of their favorite books brought to life.
